Kevin and Tasha Spann

Kevin and Tasha Spann are career staff with Mission Aviation Fellowship along with their children Adah, Solomon and Alexander. They served nearly four years with MAF in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo - Kevin as a pilot/mechanic and maintenance control manager, and Tasha as mother and parts room assistant. They now proudly serve MAF from their home office in East Tennessee. Together using their extensive experience in aviation maintenance, flight operations, and office management, they provide support for the new aviation maintenance software to all the field bases worldwide.

Kevin grew up on a small farm in rural East Tennessee. He became a baptized believer when he was 13. Later on, Kevin attended Middle Tennessee State University, earning his A&P mechanic and private pilot licenses, and his B.S. in aerospace maintenance management. By the time he and Tasha had graduated college, they were engaged and were married in July of 2006. He worked as an aviation maintenance technician and became the director of maintenance at an aircraft charter company. Through opportunities given by the grace of God, he continued to earn his inspection authorization, multi-engine, instrument, commercial and airline transport pilot ratings.

Tasha grew up in the same East Tennessee region, attending the same schools as Kevin. They enjoyed time together in the high school band. She grew up in a Christian home, but it took the passing of her grandmother to understand the true meaning of having the Lord Jesus as her Savior. She obtained an A.S. in biology from Roane State Community College and a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Tennessee. After getting married, she worked as an executive assistant at a medical manufacturing facility.

Kevin and Tasha began developing their love for cross-cultural missions by helping on short-term mission trips to the Dominican Republic and teaching English using the Bible in Costa Rica. Through a mentor at their church, Kevin learned of MAF. After a lot of divine intervention, the Spanns realized God was opening the door to MAF, and they embraced the calling God gave them.

God calls the men and women of MAF to serve Him in unique ways. He may also be calling you to a special role in the Spanns' ministry. Please prayerfully consider becoming a ministry partner with them through prayer and/or financial support.
